Here are a few of the newest batch.
The pictures do not do them justice. Tried to be creative with the backrounds to show the different types of wood.
Ebony & Lacewood both w/ Quilted Maple accent, Zebrawood w/ Ebony accent, Ebony, Bloodwood w/ Ebony & Quilted Maple accent and finally Lacewood w/ Lacewood and Ebony accent .
Have several others that did not fit on this project showcase will attach more.
Please forgive the polish residue we were in a hurry to get the picutes uploaded before we sell them.

Wow those are pretty slick. Nice job on them. Curios to know how much you sell them for?

Very impressive Lori, just beautiful!
I love the wood combination and the quality/skill of workmanship…..... or in this case “workwomanship” !

I sure hope you don’t mind if I “borrow” your design for a couple of gifts for my daughter?????

Don’t know if I did this before or not but…........ Welcome to LJ’s, the most addictive site on the internet.

Keep those beautiful project coming

I use the Incra system to make to make the joints and the hinges, and a hingecrafter to make the hole to insert the brass rods ito the hinges. the design can be founds on the Incra web site under projects.
They are fairly easy to make but at the same time a pain in the butt too…very tedious to finish.
It has taken us several bathces to perfect the fit and finish. Once we have our finish on them we buff then they get buffed with the beall system.

I figured that INCRA must have played a part in such exquisite items. Not to take away the workmanship required to take ordinary to the extraordinary . INCRA rules.. I have the TSLS32 and the dovetail router set up is on the list.

You’ve hit another home run Lori.
If that doesn’t grab a business clients’ attention when you pull one out, nothing will!
Beautiful work.
